37. Kilo Chapter 37

Kate was already up washed and ready before waking Jack.
Come on Mr Reamer lets be having you; its twenty past eight and time is wasting.
Jack buried his head in the pillow pretending to be asleep until Kate pulled off the covers. Katie! 
Jack jumped out of bed a proceeded in chasing Kate around the room she ran into the bathroom and locked the door.
There was a knock on the door and Marion Wait was waiting with clean sheets. Sorry to disturbing you sir but we normally change the sheets after breakfast.
“Have we missed breakfast then?
“Well I took the liberty of putting two breakfasts in the oven for you both since it was your wedding night and all.”
Marion you’re a saint, thank so much I will be down in five minutes.
Kate had unlocked the door of the bathroom and waited up Jack until he had washed and put on a shirt and trousers he took out a pair of clean socks then put on his shoes. Right Mrs Reamer I’m ready. They slowly walked don the narrow stairs and followed their noses to the dining area. Marion had made fresh tea and toast for them and came out shortly later with two full English breakfasts. I’m never going to eat this entire breakfast Jack; would you like another sausage and a rasher of bacon?
Alright then pass it over. Jack wolfed down the breakfast and three slices of toast with Marmalade and two cups of tea before Kate had got half way through her breakfast.
It was an hour later when they set off hand in hand along Blackpool pleasure beach. 
Blackpool had been a popular resort with tourists from the North East of England since the late 1880’s. People flocked in their thousands every year to swim in the sea and bask in the sunshine. Jack walked around the arcades with Kate giving her five shillings to change into pennies so she could play on the various machines like the penny push and the slots.
Later that afternoon Jack bought some candy rock and mint cake to take back with them. He bought Kate an ice cream with a flake and they continued their walk around the prom until they reached the pier.
It was well after five o’clock before they returned Marion Wait came out to ask if they would be staying for dinner at six thirty.
“Yes thank you said Jack what are we having?
There will be Mince and dumplings or liver and onions, followed by apple pie and custard.
Mince and dumplings for me, said Kate and you Jack what will you be having?
“Yes I will have the same as my wife.
